Well considering in high school I did literally jack (as in I got home from sports at 5:30, ate dinner at 6 and then played world of warcraft until I went to bed at 10) and still got a 3.3 I would say grades are a test of how smart you are to a point. I was able to skate by without doing anything and still get a 3.3, sometimes I failed classes (I failed junior year physics because I am terrible at physics), but I slept through French class (my parents are French) and got an A every year. Of course when I tried my grade went up, and when I didn't try my grades went back down so I think that grades determine both intelligence and effort. For people like me intelligence sets the bar, at around 3.3, and then if I want to get more then that I have to work hard. Some of my friends were really smart and the bar was set at 3.8 and they did almost as little work as me and still got a 3.8, other people I know (like most of the Asians at our school) would study night and day all day every day and get a 4.0. I dont know if they were smart, or if their excessive studying helped them get a 4.0 but I'd assume it was a bit of both.1

Grades mean nothing. I am a very smart person, but I don't have the best grades. I'm lazy and I just don't care to put too much effort into things. It doesn't mean I can't do them. I'm just lazy. They show some effort, but you could be smart and not lazy, but just not excel the best. It could be due to a number of reasons. A number is just a number and a letter is just a letter.1
